A wonderful pro-grade guitar at a fantastic price! Back in the 1960 through the 1970s, I was part of a band and played a number of guitars, but mostly a Fender Mustang which I loved, in large part because the scalloped cuts in the body, one at the back top (when holding the guitar) and another on the top edge of body where the picking arm rests. These two modifications to the body of the Mustang made it fantastically comfortable to play.When I saw these cuts on the Squier Strat, it was like a dream come true. My only reservation was the price – super low, it seemed.But I’d heard good things about it and made the purchase. Best guitar I have ever played. Simply amazing and now all my other guitars pretty much sit unused.It comes with the nut set up for smaller gauge strings – which is great for me as I like light strings so I can easily bend notes. The neck reinforcement bar did need some adjustment to straighten the neck a tad, which then allowed lowering the bridge section for each string. Once…

Great Value! I love guitars and own 3 Taylor Acoustics and one Fender American Standard Stratocaster. Now my American Standard Strat is a guitar I would never part with. I picked it up over 20 years ago and it’s the only guitar I have not traded or sold. So just yesterday…Guitar Center was having a Grand Opening sale in my neck of the woods and advertised this Fender Squier Stratocaster Bullet for $89.95. In my mind I’m thinking I would never waste my money on a “cheap” guitar but when I saw a sunburst one sitting on a guitar stand I picked it up and found it to be a pretty solid instrument! What caught my eye was how beautiful the finish was and I’ve always wanted a sunburst in a strat but was not willing to shell out over a grand for one just yet. Now having seen this “cheap” Strat sitting there I was intrigued! Now on a grand opening evening at the Guitar Center these babies went quickly and of course they ran out of the sunburst pretty quickly but there was this “display” one. Now I…

An incredible guitar for the price I bought one of these for my girlfriend’s son for Xmas a couple years ago. After getting it home and doing a set-up on it, I was so blown away by what a great deal it is, that I’ve since bought two more Bullets for myself, a surf-green one and a cream-white one.On some Bullets the fret ends can be a little sharp and need to be sanded or filed down. And all Bullets will need a set-up (adjust the truss rod, set the action, etc). But after that, for a little more than $100, you will have a very good guitar in your hands. If you don’t believe me, you can watch videos on youtube that I have posted of me playing stock, unmodified Bullets. Other people have posted videos as well. Just do a youtube search for Squier Bullet.
